Google Search Images for Classroom Use

How many times have you, as a teacher, needed a picture?  You go onto Google, search for an image, and copy and paste it to your project without looking at the copyright information. Whether we admit it or not, we have all done it at one point or another.  Google has made it simple for us to ensure that we are following Fair Use Guidelines.  By taking a few extra seconds, we can filter the pictures, allowing us to see only pictures that are labeled for "reuse".

Follow these simple steps:
  1. Go to 
  2. Type in the subject you want to search and click the search button
  3. Click on Images
  4. Click on the Search Tools Button
    • A new toolbar will show up
  5. Click on Usage rights
  6. Choose on the Usage rights option that meets your goal.  
Happy Searching!
